Best Fitness Apps To Try During Coronavirus Lockdown

Maintaining physical fitness may be more of a struggle now that gyms are closed due to COVID-19. If this is something that rings true with you, keep on reading!

It’s easy enough to say to ourselves that we are going to make the best of these wild times by getting in shape or trying out those new healthy recipes, but actually doing it is a whole different scenario. 

Some people are more “fitness savvy”. Knowing the best workouts, equipment, and fitness apps comes naturally to them. 

If you are like me, you are more prone to moving your body aimlessly in hopes of looking like Jennifer Lopez by summertime.

We live in an age where anything we need guidance with is right at our fingertips, including fitness!

Here are the best health and fitness apps for staying well during this pandemic.

 

1) MyFitnessPal

What kind of person would I be if I didn’t start off with a biased opinion?

This is the app I use EVERYDAY and in my opinion, surpasses the other apps I am about to mention. It helps me track my calorie input and output, which is vital during this pandemic because boredom snacking is a very real thing.

This app is extremely customizable to your current health state, your goals, and how much activity you are willing to put into to reach your goals. 

It has TONS of free workouts based on whatever you are trying to target. Both step by step and video routines are available.

The best part is the massive food database you can use to track your food/calorie intake. It has over 6 million food entries you can add to your food log as well as having the option to customize your food entries yourself.

The only downfall of the large food database is most all of the entries have been made by other users, so you might have to fact check if the calorie numbers seem off. 

There is also a barcode scanner in the app for instant access to food item details. 

Annnnddd… IT’S FREE.

For 9.99 monthly of 49.99 yearly, you can get premium features and track your macros more accurately. I find enough satisfaction in the standard but if you do desire to upgrade, premium on MyFitnessPal is significantly cheaper than other apps!

 

2) 7

 

7app

What makes this app COVID-19 worthy is that you can virtually compete in workouts with friends! Most of the workouts are short spanned, high-intensity focused, and can be done anywhere with no equipment! Free with in-app purchases!

 

3) Workout For Women

Women Yoga App

Don’t let the name fool you, men can definitely break a sweat from these workouts too. This app is flooded with questions but rather simply gives you an option to answer questions for customization, or simply skip to the workouts. This app is easy to navigate and aesthetically pleasing. 

The best feature is that the main home page features workouts based on;

  • Difficulty level
  • Body targeting
  • Time of workout
  • HOW MANY CALORIES ARE BURNED?! 

That’s pretty rad. If you eat a cookie that’s 46 calories, you can burn it off in 10 minutes!

 

4) Yoga For Beginners 

Yoga

Want to try something new that will calm the chaos of the coronavirus? This app is straight to the point for the user; main page featuring what the user might be seeking. Whether it be winding down for bed or toning your bum, it has it all. App made by the same designers as Workout For Women , thus having a similar format of displaying workouts’ traits front & center. 

Totally free!

 

5) Instagram

Instagram

You read that right!

Freelancers aren’t just writers and web developers, most are online health coaches!

Instagram is flooded with entrepreneurs who post their at-home workouts and share nutrition & wellness tips!

A World Gone Remote

One month ago, we alerted our community about the dangers of COVID and strongly advised against traveling before lockdowns began. Since then the world has changed dramatically.

Although our community has always embraced remote life (93% of our members are fully remote or aspire to be), it seems the whole world is talking about it now.

 

remote-work-adoption

3.1% of US workforce are fully remote
(4.8m US digital nomads 2018 / 155.76m total US workforce 2018)

 

In 2018, only 3.1% of the US workforce considered themselves digital nomads (aka fully remote). The Coronavirus is accelerating the adoption for remote work.

We are glad more people are learning about remote work. This means massively more opportunities and support for us. 

 

Online Events

Here’s a list of things now available to us as our world becomes remote friendly. Perfect for those looking for jobs, learning, and networking. 

  1. Running Remote’s Remote AID 2020 is a free, virtual workshop event on April 20th at 8AM PST. It’s designed for companies and people struggling with emergency work-from-home policies during the coronavirus outbreak. My friend Anna just did a 9-hour rehearsal of her charity event! It’s going to be amazing. Reserve a spot.
  1. My friend Joe Blair’s Remote Startup Expo is on Thursday, April 23rd at 10AM PST. A virtual summit featuring 20 top remote startup CEOs/founders! 100% free, 100% remote. This is not a webinar. There will be ample time for networking via Remo. Reserve a spot.

We got tickets and will be there. GET FREE TICKETS!!

 

Fairytrail Update

Our virtual dating concept is now being talked about by mainstream media as one of our members explains on NBC

Entrance fee is coming next week (assuming Apple approves our app update), so invite your friends to join Fairytrail now while it’s free. 

Oh and 6nomads published an article about us!

Wishing you health and safety,

Fairytrail Campfire is meant to let nomads and world citizens help each other achieve their business and personal goals (aka make dreams come true). Some of us want to have the freedom to be anywhere which means having a job that lets them work remotely.

Here’s a list of 1600+ remote jobs from companies who are hiring remotely in February 2020. Our original post on Campfire was very successful, so we wanted to make it easily found and decided to post it here too. If this is valuable, we may continue this. Let us know.
